Gurdjieff was born in Alexandropol, and trained in Kars both as
a priest and a physician. For some twenty years, he travelled in
the remotest regions of Central Asia and the Middle East - this
time was crucial in the moulding of his thought. With his party of
followers, he was responsible for the opening of the Institute for
the Harmonious Development of Man.
